"Vampira, Tura Satana and Elvira. The concept of The 69 Eyes is based on the evil beauty of these women," said lead vampire, Jyrki69. "I was a member of Elvira fan club ever since I saw her on the cover of Fangoria in the mid-80's. I had a life-size poster of her in the black lingerie in a coffin on my wall for years. F*ck it, I should put it back, just to celebrate the fact that finally I feel like The 69 Eyes made it - Elvira's supporting us!"
"This is THE 69 EYES at the most melodic but even more than that, the most intense. The song has a very intense feeling, you know, like when your heart beats wild (red), when the world circles around you and when you find out the painful truth. Think of those scenes in the movies like "Vertigo" or "Vanilla Sky". Something's broken and there's nothing you can do about it. It's a very epic and emotional song." - Jyrki, vocalist of The 69 Eyes
The 10th 69 EYES album was recorded in Stockholm and Helsinki during the spring of 2012. It was produced by Swedish team On The Verge and mixed by Stefan Boman (KENT, THE HELLACOPTERS, BACKYARD BABIES).
It takes THE 69 EYES' goth 'n' roll sound back to their highlights decade ago of their albums like "Blessed Be" and "Paris Kills", yet rising the singer Jyrki's voice as the main statement of the record. The man in black is back. THE 69 EYES rise. Again.
Hailing from the gothic metal scene of the Finnish underground, The 69 Eyes consists of Jyrki Pekka Emil Linnankivi "Jyrki 69" (vocals), Pasi Moilanen "Bazie" and Timo Pitkänen "Timo-Timo" (guitarists), Arto Väinö Ensio Ojajärvi "Archie, Archzie" (bassist) and Jussi Heikki Tapio Vuori (Drums).
